I agree with you in principle, but Qatar really is one of the most unsuitable places on earth to hold this competition.

Bowlie I was surprised by “tens of thousands”, so looked it up. I’d say you are on the high side by any measure, but it’s still a ridiculous number of immigrant workers who have died in Qatar since the World Cup was awarded (note the wording which distinguishes between a direct result of the World Cup).

It's a shame!
